Bob Marley and the Golden Age of Reggae

  • @matildbattersby

Rare and largely previously unseen photographs of Bob Marley at the height of his career have been published in a new book which hits shops next week.

Bob Marley And The Golden Age of Reggae provides a glimpse of some of the greatest years of the musician’s career, and charts the history of reggae and dub music.

Through portraits, performance and personal shots, photographer Kim Gottlieb-Walker provides a unique insight into the iconic artist.

Captured in Jamaica in the mid 1970s, the collection also features Peter Tosh and Bunny Wailer, Lee “Scratch” Perry, Heptones, Inner Circle and Jacob Miller, Jimmy Cliff, Jr Murvin, Toots and The Maytals, George Harrison, Burning Spear and Third World.

Featuring a foreword from Hollywood filmmaker and former Rolling Stone journalist Cameron Crowe, this deluxe hardback collection also includes commentary from Island Records’ Jeff Walker, and founding editor of The Beat magazine, Roger Steffens.
